I’m in Chicago, ready to attend BlogHer Business this morning and BlogHer itself tomorrow and the next day. I’m excited: I’ve been curious about these conferences since I read about the first one several years ago, and I’m happy things finally worked out so I can attend one. Also, I mainly attend academic conferences, and this is anything but – 1200 blogging women (and a few men) all getting together. Sometimes most of the pre-conference discussion seems to be about What to Wear to BlogHer, which makes me a little worried, but I figure with all the enthusiasm about this conference there’s got to be a lot of good stuff.

Anyway, got to get to breakfast now, but I promise to blog and tweet the conference – I gather that’s one of the main activities there, so I’d better, eh?
